You live in the Tampa Bay area, but you are under federal investigation or facing federal criminal charges in another state. You need a federal criminal defense attorney to represent you.

You could hire a lawyer who's local to where the investigation or case is pending, but your communications with that lawyer will most likely be limited to telephone calls and email. Chances are you won't even meet him or her until you have to appear in court. Do you really want a long-distance relationship with your lawyer when your freedom is at stake?
